Everything is Link

End of the year, end of the decade, that means a butt-load of links. How much of a butt-load? If one were to quantify it into a unit of measurement I'd call it a Kardashian.

Anyway lots of lists. Which you gotta love. Especially from my beloved AV Club.

The AV Club produced several phenomenal, thoughtful lists. Of the main list of the 50 best of the decade I've seen 42. This is nice because of the bragging rights but ALSO eight AV approved classics for me to seek out.
Here's what you can see:
Their favorite scenes of the 00's.
The best bad movies of the 00's (which got me to FINALLY rent The Room).
The best film performances of the 00's (which disappointingly seems to be lacking major comedy performances).
The best films of the 00's.
The orphans and personal favorites of the 00's.


Also here are 9 badass actors in wussy roles.

Not enough to think about, how about a list of 100 films outside the classical cannon.

Also that clever Mr. Beaks has started putting up a well thought out, very personal list for his best of the decade. Its not done yet but here is part one and part two.

Still not enough lists? How about the 10 best tracking shots of all time (VERY DEBATABLE)!

Analysis: Matt over at the House Next Door has a cool video essay about Clint Eastwood.
"The House" also takes a look at the majestic classic Lawrence of Arabia.
I warn you if you have common sense and good taste you're not going to want to see the content of this article. Ugh, makes my ass pucker in terror.

Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner have lots of funny and clever things to say here. A must read.

The National Board of Review named its best of the year. Its two previous winners (Slumdog Millionaire and No Country for Old Men) went on to win Oscars. Hmmm, I wonder what this means for this year's winner Up in the Air?

Whats on the agenda for the weekend/upcoming week: I finish my Fantastic Mr. Fox review and take a look at Up in the Air and The Room (Yes, THAT The Room).
